"A dark underwater-like atmosphere... it's shimmering, swooshing, rattling in finest manufacture"
freistil (AT)

"...Electroacoustic improvisation with a chamber music perspective." (PT)

"...This quartet sounds as if they have always played together, ... and again it proves to me that rather than scenes should be monitored individuals or individual works."
his voice (CZ)



Aural Tools #2 - Freie Aerophone
laser cut on high density cardboard.

Aural Tools #2 is based on Matija Schellanders solo pieces for double bass,
"the drill" and "matija schellander", that make extensive use of indistinct
low pitches resonating a space, and sound projections by circular movement
of the performer with the instrument.
